The 2020 Triumph Street Triple RS is expected to come with a similar ex-showroom price of Rs 11.13 lakhs.
Triumph was to introduce the 2020 Street Triple RS in India last month, but the launch was postponed due to the outbreak of the novel coronavirus virus. Now, the British two-wheeler manufacturer has confirmed that it will launch an updated naked streetfighter in the country on April 22, 2020.
Triumph will announce the price of the motorcycle on the official Twitter handle, and may then begin booking online, as dealerships are currently closed due to the ongoing nationwide lockdown. While the Street Triple RS is not a new bike, much has changed compared to the outgoing model.
The bike continues to be powered by a 765 cc, liquid-cooled, inline-triple motor, making a maximum of 123 PS at 11,700 rpm, while peak torque output is 2 Nm and is now rated at 79 Nm. 10,800 rpm. The engine continues to be paired with an up / down quickshifter with a 6-speed gearbox.
A fully adjustable Shoeka fork handles suspension duties from the front, and an XHins STX40 monoshock setup at the rear. The bike is equipped with Pirelli Supercorsa SP V3 tires, and the Brembo M50 is equipped with Monobloc brake callipers.
The overall style remains the same, with some subtle twists as well. The headlamp is slightly restrained and is now integrated with LED DRLs which make it look sharper than before. The 2020 Street Triple RS also gets a redesigned wizard with exhaust, carbon-fiber treatment on a satin metal heel guard. Also, the color TFT display offered on the outgoing model has now been updated with Bluetooth connectivity, new graphics, Mytriff connectivity feature and GoPro control.
The Triumph motorcycle currently retails the Street Triple RS at a base price of Rs 11.13 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi), and we expect the upcoming 2020 model to carry a similar price tag. At launch, the naked streetfighter will stand against the Kawasaki Z900, while it may also get a new rival in the form of the KTM Sc Super Scalpel ‘890 Duke R, which is speculated to be introduced in the Indian market next year.
